Hi,

 

Before plugging the power supply to my new 12" LX 600, i want to make sure the

center pin in the 12 volts dc IN socket is positive, correct ?

 

Also how many milliamps are required ?

 

I could not find these informations in the manual.

 

Thanks for your help,

Thanks Mark for the reply.

 

My power supply meter indicates about 400 mA idle, 600 mA with one motor running,

and 900 mA with both.

 

Cheers,

 

J Guy
